problem #1

It all started when the radiator cracked in the summer in Phx, AZ. By the time it was noticed and shut down it was too late and it blew the head gasket. After that endevor to repair, the electrical system started acting up. First problem was the 40 amp fuse to starter was blowing, coses for the O2 sensor and smog pump were reading. Replaces O2 sensor abd removed Smog pump and bench tested OK. Removed starter and it bench tested OK at Auto Zone. Went into wiring looms to chase down any shorted or grounded wires and found no smoking guns but made some minor repairs to areas that had some scuffed insulation. Got vehicle to run and while test drivimg it to put enough miles on it to run it through emissions it just died. With the help of a previous S-10 owner that knew the drill, he helped me push it off the road.
